they knew and they could trust had the right priority from president obama to historic numbers of democratic women. and out of the problems we asked, and we asked them about everything, i'm sure they were thrilled to to do one more poll after the leather. the candidates they voted against, they were really concerned that those candidates were going to take us back to the failed poll sthoifs past. like, they got it. they don't want to roll the clocks back. they want to move forward. and more than being wrong on any specific issue of debt or health care or social issues or taxes, women recognize the total madmen g.o.p. agenda is what they did not want and they reacted that way. i say this growth will be sustainable in the years to come. and we have the right agenda and need to keep building and talking to our women, our fellow sisters across the country and the men who stand with us. because they know that together we can make a great, great difference. and with that, i think about just some of the incredible women who have done so much and we do have a couple of special guests here today and

military struck a syrian military launcher after a war went right into israeli territory. israeli air force was forced to strike gaza targets. my question is, where is the obama administration as the time bomb ticks down in middle east. guys, welcome back. congressman king, we've got benghazi hearings, she is at a wine tasting. we have we've got israel conflicts, syria, pending issues with iran. not a lot of trump with the muslim brotherhood. where are the priorities? >> you think this would be the exactly the time when you need your secretary of state engaged full force. anticipating the hearings coming up in congress and she finds herself conveniently out of touch in australia. she was the one that general petraeus resigned and took him off the stage. now hillary clinton is out. she is off the stage for now. we'll continue to drill on this but the balance of power and u.s. influence does need a secretary of state on tab. we've got two things, the continuing developments in benghazi and how we have to investigate that completely. plus to avert a disaster in the middle east. i don't see her
people, guess what, that is not what president obama said. if the cia is back in the line of work of getting taking bad guys and interrogating them, that is probably a bigger scandal right then and there. lou: it is the only departure of the bush policy, that i'm aware of in this administration, isn't that correct? >> they have continued a lot of other things. what makes me very nervous, we have an fbi that reports the attorney general a the justice department investigating another intelligence armed government and another cabinet officer and presumably this has now been done. lou: at this point we all have to say with absolute directness, it is time to be reserved about the use of the word true and very important if the allegations claimed by. we have the top spy proved himself db enough knong he is being surveyed by his own agency in all likelihd other agencies of foreign government, by the bad guys other nations, my gosh, how could anybody be so stupid ato do what he has done? >> i know the man and i'm as stunned and upset as anybody. wh is the takeway from all of this? other c

the church won't give up it's fight against president obama's birth control healthcare mandate. he said they will move forward with lawsuits, arguing all employers should be able to opt out of free birth control coverage, so says the cardinal. all right. rich, back to you. >> thanks very much. >> we know there's no place like home so imagine this woman's reaction from government bulldozers rolled up to her front yard looking to take back a piece of land that's been in her family for 200 years. but after crews ripped up the road, construction was called off and they nixed the project and offered her a settlement to keep her mouth shut. good morning. >> good morning. >> so sorry this happened to you. this is what we call eminent domain where the government, a town, a county has the power to come in and take over land if they want to. but in this case, after they did that, i'm sure you weren't happy with that initially, but then they nixed the project. so where does it stand now? what do you want? >> right now my road is damaged. i have trees of that been torn down, shrubs of that been tor
, pennsylvania's arlen specter and bob bennett of utah lost their re-election bids in 2010. all right, enough of that real news, we'll gather around the water cooler and talk about the angry letters that the white house has been receiving since president obama's re-election. many solidly conservative states have been flooding the white house's we the people website with petition requests to secede from the union of the united states. for help on that john stuart n >> they have received petitions from 20 states who would like to cede from the union. >> wait. i'm not sure exactly which 20 states those are or which people they are in those states but i think i can express how i feel about these states and people in the words of the great william wonka. >> stop, don't come back. [ applause ] >> at least now i'm beginning to understand why southern states were always so hesitant to get rid of the confederate flag. it was like keeping your fat pants after you lose some weight. you're happy now with the new you but pretty soon you'll need those fat pants again. oh, domino's in staten island. >> alwa
of president obama, the combination of spending cuts and tax increases and new revenue right? which has got to be the solution. >> absolutely. i think what we have to be careful of is that these cuts are proper cuts that they don't create havoc in the lives of the most vulnerable and low income individuals. >> bill: that's what i wanted to ask you about. do we know where these cuts would hit and who would be hardest hit by them? >> well, of course, across-the-board cuts, sequestration takes place, which of course, i could not support we're going to see this 8% to 10% cut across the board. so you're going to see children's programs cut. you're going to see other cuts, some terrible, terrible cuts take place. that people really cannot tolerate. of course, we need to -- and i still say we need to make sure defense cuts are on the table because we're look at a defense budget that's full of waste fraud and abuse. and that's full of billions of dollars that are there for cold war era weapons systems research that doesn't ma
fox 5 on time traffic. >> all right. thank you very much. in today's top story, president obama has his first full press conference in more than 8 months later this afternoon. and it comes as the president's plate is filling up quickly. >> the president put press conferences on hold during the election but since then we've seen issue after issue crop up. not the least of which is this scandal involving the now former cia director david patraeus and also one of the nation's top generals. >>> the president will have to do something of a juggling act when he scares off. for starters his high profile cia director is gone because of a sex scandal. and john allen is under investigation for e-mails he sent to a patraeus family friend. he got backing from his immediate boss. >> no one should leap to conclusions. general allen is doing an excellent job in leading those forces. he certainly has my continued confidence. >> one prominent conservative is questioning the conduct of the fbi in both cases. >> let me begin with general allen who is smeared by an investigation who got out of control.
on that coming up. even when they say it's not, it is always about money. melissa: all right. first the day's market headlines. a bad day for stocks just keeps getting worse. a news conference by president obama only amplified fears about the fiscal cliff and down to a 4-month low down 185 points. banks of america led the slide, closing down more than 3 1/2%. one bright spot, cisco shares surged 5% on an earnings beat. >>> now to our top story, president obama may be a betting man because he is trying to double down on how much tax revenue will be raised as part of the fiscal cliff deal. after meeting with business leaders today and union leaders yesterday, the report president is reportedly taking a hard-line with the gop, pushing for a $1.6 trillion tax hike on corporations and the wealthy over the next 10 years. here it comes. joining me is union leader. thanks so much for joining us. you're the national, sorry, the president of the national education association. you attended the president's meeting with labor leaders at the white house. thanks for joining us. what was the tone of that
to think it meant when a presidential candidate won 332 electoral college votes and he thought this right up until the day before the election. >> all of my thinking says romney big. not even close. 300 plus electoral votes for romney. >> even though president obama very clearly ran on raising income tax rates for top earners, paul ryan claims he is not so sure that's what america actually voted for. >> his argument is people voted for him because they believe tax rates should be raised. do you disagree? >> i don't know if i agree with that. we have divided government, they also voted for a clear majority. >> never mind that more votes were cast for democrats in the house of representatives than republicans. in the house, republicans maintained their majority, strictly through gerrymandering their districts, and never mind that election exit polls show that 13% of voters said they should increase all tax rates on everyone, and another 47% said increase tax rates for incomes over 250,000, so that adds up to 60% of americans in favor of at least the obama tax rate increases and some of them
, it was a shock when we did not. >> he says president obama won a fair and square pieces the president deserves praise for a fantastic ground game. >> not checking news around the nation, three book killed when a small plane heading to a safety conference crashed right into this mississippi homes. officials in the single engine plant had just taken off when it started having problems and it crashed. all three victims were on the plan, authorities a resident was able to escape with just minor injuries. at this point, no word on what exactly brought down the plane veered across a texas woman prisoner to life in prison after being convicted in connection with a deadly fire at her home in daycare. a jury convicted jessica of a felony murder in the death of one of the four children who died in that fire back in february 2011. three other children seriously hurt. prosecutors say she left the children alone with hot oil on the stove while she went shopping. >> army prosecutor to recommend a death penalty for staff sgt. is accused of killing 16 afghan villagers and a rampage. after testimony and a prel
be to blame. 10% would blame both. we'll be carrying president obama's news conference live at 1:30 thi afternoon. you can watch it on our website. we'll be streaming live on www.nbcwashington.com. >>> we're following breaking news right now. nbc news learned david petraeus will answer questions about september's deadly attack in benghazi after all. he will testify tomorrow before the senate intelligence committe he was supposed to testify today, until he resigned after admitting he had an affair. tracie potts has more on the growing scandal. >> reporter: at least one member of congress already spoke with the cia about the crowing controversy involving david petraeus and john allen. >> i don't have any reason to think there are national security issues at stake in what transpi transpired. >> there are questions of e-mails between allen and kelley. one senior official says they were not explicit, but used names like sweetheart and dear. allen denies any wrong doing. >> no one should lead to conclusions here. his nomination has been put on hold as a prudent measure until we determine what
to intel, but right now it is in real trouble. stocks are on sale down nearly 200 points the dow jones industrials but we have the ceo of honeywell coming up, just in a meeting with president obama, so let's begin after the bell with david asman. david: a lot of people sit in it he started talking the market went down. i think it was much more to do with what the federal reserve was saying about when they may raise rates. they broach the subject of raising rates even though it is in the future. liz: that and possibly qe4 and people trying to blame the president. we know nicole petallides talking to all the traders and accelerating losses into the close. nicole: he said we have further to go to the downside, looking at the technicals were not actually by the market until we were a nice pop for facebook. liz: on the down day, abercrombie and fitch came out with sales just down on fifth avenue can see there is always a line for this company. nicole: they were down 36% year-to-date after the close. today a complete turnaround saying the sales are doing well. good numbers for abercrombie. d
not know. is there any talk about revenue spending, creating job programs. when president obama came into office, the stimulus was part of his agenda. as you look at the financial situation, is there talk of big spending right now? guest: there is talk of job training and infrastructure -- from this increased revenue. is that something congress can agree on? i think that in this climate of austerity, as people are starting to think about the deficit, i do not think we will necessarily see a large-scale stimulus like the one we have before. there is a fascinating statistic and a national journal story that they now spend $7 on programs for senior citizens and elderly people for every $1 it spends on young people. and at $1 goes to everything from education, student loans, job training. so the federal government spending at this point is really skewed towards taking care of the older population of versus helping the younger ones succeed. that'll be a tricky thing moving forward. alternately, to take care of older people you need to of younger people have a good jobs and making good wag
boehner. right now, there has been a lot of concern, especially among the progressives, but beyond that, insuring that people pay their fair share. but the trade-off, it is clear president obama has said, is cuts to what they call entitlement programs -- medicare, medicaid, social security. talk about these -- our guest yesterday sir anderson called, earned income benefits, actually, not entitlements. >> social security is something people have paid into their entire lives, not just people on the verge of receiving the benefits, even workers have been in the work force for some time. what is extraordinary about this moment to make, what really define president of his first term from a domestic and economic perspective is the recovery from the financial crisis was one that was a recovery for the wealthiest in america -- corporate profits boomed, wall street and the stock market increased at a time when the foreclosure crisis continued to worsen, very little attention was paid to that, very little has been done about unemployment. so the income gap, the rich-poor gap in the u.s. is the hi
for a full 60 days. use promo code: gethelp. plus get this document shredder free-- but only if you act right now. call the number on your screen now! >> i am dennis kneale. >> i am cheryl casone. noon eastern time and here is the question, tax the rich? president obama to hit the hardwood in a couple of hours. he is now insisting on a $1.6 trillion tax increase, but we have a ceo who says the president is meeting with the wrong people. he says small business is really holding all the cards right now. dennis: general alarm. the general agreement testified to congress. we are alive at the pentagon with the latest. cheryl: retail sales falling as we head into the holy grail of profits. black friday and the christmas shopping season. we have two analysts with the stocks to buy the stocks to dump. dennis: nicole petallides, so the dow turned lower, nicole. nicole: at least it looks like they have been dumping them more than buying them lately, cheryl and dennis. down almost 60 points on the dow jones industrial. we recoup some losses we saw earlier today, but the bank index has been under pressur
geithner made his first comments about the fiscal crisis since obama's re-election. reuters reports the secretary says, it's not possible to cut the deficit without modest tax increases of some kind. there's a big story coming up right now for us. mack mclarty was chief of staff to president clinton. in a piece published yesterday in "the washington post," he suggested enlisting bill clinton and mitt romney, who just lost the election, to work together to get a tax deal done. dennis van roekel is president of the national education association, and he was in today's meeting with the president. thank you very much, dennis, and thank you very much, mack, for joining us. let me ask you about this deal, first. i want to ask you the best part. let me go to dennis. what was in that meeting today? did you get a sense there was give on the left and the right? >> i think this meeting was a very important meeting. it was one of three. he first met with labor leaders and progressives, tomorrow with the business community, and friday with members of congress. i think it's a good start. we have
in the past. so it's likely they will do one response. >> greta: for all 30 states? >> right. >> greta: and 30 states don't have the threshold? >> the three last time, louisiana and florida have hit the threshold. there was another petition that was started, liberals started a petition asking obama to sign an executive order that anybody that signs those other petitions should get exiled from the country. >> greta: a little fun with each other. coming up your last call. brace yourself are we approaching the fiscal cliff faster than we thought. jay leno has that answer up next. humans -- even when we cross our t's and dot our i's, we still run into problems. namely, other humans. which is why, at liberty mutual insurance, auto policies come with new car replacement and accident forgiveness if you qualify. see what else mes standard at libertymutual.com. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. >> but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor pre
